Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a short-term, solution-focused form of therapy that helps people see the difference between beliefs, thoughts, and feelings, and free them from unhelpful patterns of behavior.
CBT is grounded in the belief that it is a person’s perception of events – rather than the events themselves – that determines how he or she will feel and act in response.
CBT can help with:
- Attention-Deficit Disorder (ADD/ADHD)
- Obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD)
- Panic attacks
- Stressful events
- Life Transitions
If any of the above issues resonate with you, we encourage you to try Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy.
With CBT, you’ll be able to adjust the unhelpful thoughts that directly influence your emotions and behavior. This adjustment process is referred to as cognitive reconstructing, this is one of the primary techniques in CBT.
Other CBT techniques are:
- Challenging beliefs
- Exploring automatic (learned) thoughts
- Social, physical and thinking exercises
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is much more than sitting and talking about whatever comes to mind during a session. CBT sessions are structured to ensure that the therapist and the person in treatment are focused on the different goals of each session, which in turn ensures that each and every session is productive.
